Rachmaninoff: Preludes

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Eldar Nebolsin's debut recording of the complete preludes -- that includes all of Opus 23 and Opus 32 plus the always-popular "Opus 3 No. 2 in C sharp minor" -- is in every way but one fully competitive with the very best. Nebolsin has the technique -- check out his incredible two-handed chords in "Opus 23 No. 2 in B flat major" -- and the stamina -- check out his unbelievably propulsive "Opus 32 No. 6 in F minor." Better yet, he has the soul -- listen to his soaring lines in "Opus 23 No. 10 in G flat major" -- and the spirit -- listen to his balance between motion and stasis in "Opus 32 No. 10 in B minor."

Eldar Nebolsin's debut recording of the complete preludes -- that includes all of Opus 23 and Opus 32 plus the always-popular "Opus 3 No. 2 in C sharp minor" -- is in every way but one fully competitive with the very best. Nebolsin has the technique -- check out his incredible two-handed chords in "Opus 23 No. 2 in B flat major" -- and the stamina -- check out his unbelievably propulsive "Opus 32 No. 6 in F minor." Better yet, he has the soul -- listen to his soaring lines in "Opus 23 No. 10 in G flat major" -- and the spirit -- listen to his balance between motion and stasis in "Opus 32 No. 10 in B minor." Indeed, all Nebolsin lacks is the maturity to dig beneath the surface melancholy of Rachmaninov's music to the bone-deep gloom and doom lying at the core of the moody Russian's heart. But considering how great his accomplishment, holding Nebolsin's youth against him is almost beside the point -- after all, time usually takes care of his "problem" -- and anyone who loves the repertoire should hear this recital. Produced by John Taylor at Potton Hall in Weston, Suffolk, Naxos' digital sound recorded is rich and smooth, but nicely detailed.
Dallas Morning News - Scott Cantrell
[Grade: A] Eldar Nebolsin...has this music in his blood. He captures its nobility as well as its passion, delicacy as well as dazzle.... One of the finest Rachmaninoff CDs to come along in a while. Highly recommended.
